Our vision is to improve the wellbeing of children, parents and school staff through widening access to flexischooling


For many children, school is the problem

We need a positive and creative response to the attendance crisis in our schools.


Finding the Flex exists to support families and schools in co-creating flexischooling arrangements that better meet the needs of children.

"If as a society we are serious about lifelong education and equity, we need to ensure that we enable all children to enjoy their school years. Flexi-schooling could be the game-changer to enable this for a significant number of children."

How we work with professionals

If you are a local authority, academy trust or school, we can save you the time and effort it would take to develop your flexischooling policy.


We offer a range of services that enable you to:

  • address the needs of neurodivergent children and those with a SEND profile. 

  • utilise flexischooling as a positive and pre-emptive EBSNA intervention.


How we work with families

If you are a parent or carer, we can support you to understand if flexischooling is the right choice for your family. 

We offer: 

  • free, downloadable information leaflets for parents and carers. 

  • webinars to address your questions about flexischooling. Join our mailing list to stay updated with our events and news. 

  • signposting to helpful online groups for parents and carers.


Why we are here

Too many of our children are saying that school is the source of their unhappiness. Part time schooling is already happening for the large numbers of children who have stopped attending.


Usually they are told they ‘must’ return. That if they don't, they will be unable to learn and succeed and their parents will face fines or prosecution.


But desperately anxious children forced to attend school are not learning.  Telling them they ‘must’  can make things worse


At Finding the Flex, we actively promote flexischooling as a solution because it offers the best of both worlds.


We are bridging the gap between the needs of individual families, developing workable policies and designing bespoke schooling arrangements that make all kinds of sense for children.
